JEOL designs and manufactures highly sophisticated scientific instruments. One of their key products, NMR, is used for analyzing molecular structures.
JEOL’s engineers chose Ada for both the NMR’s workstation software and the embedded system that runs the hardware. They believed that Ada was the best choice for developing robust applications that would respond to the mission critical needs of their customers. They were proven right.
What they didn’t expect was the robust effect Ada would have on their bottom line.
